Be careful when praising Bob Woodward.
Both Cohn and Porter feature prominently in the book as key aides trying to slow down what they believed were ill-considered presidential decisions.
Woodward explains: McMaster, he says, "understood the strategic importance of India, a sworn enemy of Pakistan". The U.S. president said that "unelected deep state operatives... are truly a threat to democracy itself".
